The Spring Summer 2010 shows in New York, London and Milan are already in the bag. The competition for which model will be the hottest name on the S/S10 runway begins and all will be decided following the eagerly-awaited Paris shows at the end of the week! Here are the three models that Grazia has been watching - and who we’re predicting to be hot in 2010….
Name: Sessilee Lopez
Born in: Philadelphia
Campaigns: Tommy Hilfiger AW’09, Gas AW’09, CK Fragrance SS’10, Gap SS’10, Barneys SS’10
Finest moment: Italian Vogue’s Black Issue cover model, July 2008
The Lowdown: Sessilee caught our eye during LFW as she was cast for all the hottest shows in town and was also spotted walking at the Dolce & Gabbana and D&G shows in Milan.
Why she’s hot: Sessilee not only has amazing cheek bones but also has one of the fiercest walks we’ve seen this season!
Name: Hanne Gaby Odiele
Born in: Belgium
Campaigns: Pepe Jeans AW’09, Missoni AW’09, Sandro AW’09, Balenciaga SS’08
Finest moment: Bouncing back from a serious car accident and appearing on the cover of Vogue Italia 2009.
The Lowdown: Back on the scene after a year out following her road accident back in 2006 where she broke almost every bone in her body, Hanne has since become one of the hottest names on the catwalk. Seen walking for everyone from Missoni, Prada, Christopher Kane and Topshop Unique, 2009 looks to be an exciting year for Hanne.
Why she’s hot: Her milky white skin and razor sharp jaw-line are what caught our eye every time.
Name: Elise Helene
Born in: Toronto
Campaigns: Having walked for the likes of Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, and Yves Saint Laurent, 2010 is predicted to be her year.
Finest moment: Is definitely still to come…all eyes are on the Paris shows at the end of the week.
The Lowdown: Grazia shot Elise for our ‘Day Before you Came’ main fashion story back in June this year and after having walked for Lanvin, YSL and Louis Vuitton back in March, we weren’t too surprised to see her walking for pretty much all the biggest shows at LFW SS’10.
Why she’s hot: Apart from her striking auburn hair, Elise’s bubbly character is what makes her so much fun to work with. She is full of energy and we particularly heart her hilarious impersonations.
